I am a research scientist at IBM Research – Zurich in the Cloud Technologies group. My work is part of the Algorithms and Machines effort within Dome, a joint project with Astron, the Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy, that has also established the Astron & IBM Center for Exascale technology in the Netherlands. In Dome we develop system modeling methodologies in support for the Square Kilometre Array (SKA), the world's largest radio telecope that is currently being developed.
I am also currently pursuing a PhD degree in the Computer Engineering and Networks Laboratory at ETH Zurich. I hold a M.Sc. degree in Communication Systems from EPF Lausanne and a B.Sc. degree in Computer Science from UP Bucharest. My main research interests are large-scale system design-space exploration, software characterization and machine learning.
